Shire Woodworking Club Annual Excellence Awards

Unfortunately I was unable to attend the December maxi day.

The club held its annual SWC Excellence Awards submission and judging as well as the Christmas party. There were 41 attendees including 3 guests which was a good crowd out of a total membership of 72. 

The number of entries was not as high as in previous years however the rules were changed this year to exclude entries from the plank competition. The newsletter below shows all entries and winning items.

Ray Tregoning was winner in the furniture category as well as the overall winner with his Adirondack chair; I saw this when he displayed it earlier in the year and it was a deserving winner.

    Hi Gary

    I’m trying very hard to find the details of how to become a member of the club. I’m a newbie, being a mostly retired accountant.
